    Hi Dirk, 14+ yrs ago is quite some time... Yet, if by some chance you get this message and still can place a hand on the manual... It would be Greatly Appreciated (by many) if you would post a PDF copy of the manual. (Anywhere) we will find it..,
    With the company changing hands a few times over the years they are unable/unwilling to provide any info on this dinosaur... Amazingly, you are the 1st person I have come across who has the manual... Thank you.for your time and consideration....

Hey... just reading the manual.. p28 "enjoying the sound effects" note says that "this machine is not equipped with dts digital surround decoder. when you select digital sound, sound is not output during playback disc with dts." not sure of the implications of this, but sounds like the problem you spoke of

My surround sound won't work now when I play the dvd player

Could be many things - I know, bad answer. There is no simple answer or fix.

Without more info one can only speculate.

Please determine and answer as many or all of the following so that we can help.

1) What is the make and model number of the Surround sound unit?
2) What is the make and model of the DVD player?
3) How is the DVD player connected to the Surround sound unit?
3a) Is it connected via an HDMI cable?
3b) Does the DVD player have regular stereo connections that you are using (we call these analog audio connectors)?
3c) does the DVD player have digital audio outputs that are connected to the Surround sound receiver?
4) Did the DVD player EVER make sound?
4a) if yes - what changed?
4b) if yes - does this happen with different discs?

Now some general points.
I'll assume that the other sources do work and play sound through all speakers when they are supposed to play sound through all speakers.

Then - I'll assume that without changing anything else you select the DVD player input that used to make sound but doesn't now.

Problem could be the encoding option that you have selected when you play the disc.
Many DVD's and Bluray's have audio options that you can select from the disc's main menu.
Dolby digital is the most common - also known as AC3.
Some discs have another digital audio track called DTS.

Not all surround receivers can decode all formats.

Even if your surround receiver claims to be able to decode AC3 and DTS, they will not if you don't connect the correct cable to the receiver and usually map the input to the correct digital audio connection that you are using OR if your DVD player is not capable of outputting all formats.

There are many different ways to connect the gear and many different ways one can configure correctly or not; all contributing to whether you get sound or not.

So in the above example - by selecting DTS, you do not get any sound - then try another audio track option. Basic stereo usually works (also know as PCM - which is audio like a CD).

OR maybe you never properly configured the audio properties of the DVD player.

Go into the DVD's menu or set up options and see what you find but make sure you know how the DVD is connected to your surround receiver!

As you can see - there is no simple answer without a lengthy Q and A exchange first.

RX-V465 Yamaha Reciver we can get picture but no sound w/PS3

Check HDMI Sound settings:
Enter Setup menu via remote, then Func. Setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose from Amp (sound will be played via Yamaha), TV (sound will go straight via HDMI out to your TV and not play on Yamaha) and Amp+TV (Yamaha will play the sound and also pass it to the TV).
Also what is your source? DVD or some network player? For example Yamaha cannot decode audio in AAC or other computer formats, so be sure to change the audio settings of your player to output PCM and not raw/bitstream.

When DVD uses DTS Sound, doesn't use 5.1

The bitstream sent out by the BluRay player is selectable via menus on thedisk. And the player itself may have a menu that allows it. Would need to know more about the source.

My dts is not coming on when I attach it to the dvd with optical

DTS will only come on if you are playing a dts dvd,most of these dvd,s need you to pick dts in the setup menu or sound settings.If you have done this make sure dts out is set to on in your dvd player.

Hope this helps.

DTS Doesn't works with my PS3

there are a few versions of DTS. if you are enabling DTS HD master on the menu for a blu ray disc this only outputs through the HDMI port not optical. This goes with all the new versions of DTS. If it is just DTS 5.1 it should go through. Make sure you have all the latest updates for your PS3. Make sure you are enabling DTS in the PS3 menu for optical out.( i dont own one so i dont know the menu at all) I just want to help. I hope this helps alittle and good luck with this.

Cant turn on dts on dvd player

First check that the DVD has DTS (digital theater sound). Then you may need to change the audio option. In the main menu of the dvd go to sound options or set-up and check that its not 5.1 or some other audio option and is in DTS.

You did not list the make or model of your dvd player and or receiver, It would help if I had this info.

No dolby digical in DVD mode.

PCM mode will not output dobly digital, use the digital cable connection, not RCA cables, set DVD audio output menu to Dolby digital or DTS. On DVD software menu setup select audio then Dolby Digital 5.1 or Dolby Surround.

I cannot seem to get DTS-HD master to show on the receiver screen

You need to check 3 things:

1) DTS will only work through a digital connection (coaxial, optical, or HDMI) between your receiver and dvd player. DTS and Dolby 5.1 cannot carry a signal over red and white rca connections.

2) After number 1 is solved ensure the reciever is set to the digital channel, your DTS-HD in this case, or in an auto mode.

3) Finally the most important is that the signal is a DTS signal. Start a DTS capable dvd, go to the sound menu and set it for DTS.

Press play and all should be well...

Cheers,

No sound through the speakers...

It may be the PS3
you have to select Optical Out 5.1 etc first.
That PS3 is not user friendly at all.
